About this Event
Hosted by Disability Services and Fellows, join us for a screening of Crip Camp! This documentary, "Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution" is a 2020 American documentary film directed, written and co-produced by Nicole Newnham and James LeBrecht.
Disability Services and Fellows hope to provide a space to engage with this meaningful documentary. A short session of listening and sharing will be held afterwards by the Fellows, and those who identify as disabled and/or are disabled-resonant are invited. This session is to provide some space afterwards to constructively and collaboratively share thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
There will be some light snacks available. Please get in touch with C. Ross at email@example.com if you have any accommodation needs for viewing this documentary, or for attending the event. In every instance, a true best-effort will be given, though please provide 1-2 weeks advance notice if possible.
"In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a ramshackle camp “for the handicapped” (a term no longer used) in the Catskills, exploded those confines. ... Crip Camp is the story of one group of people and captures one moment in time. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of other equally important stories from the Disability Rights Movement that have not yet received adequate attention. ... We stand by the creed of nothing about us, without us. For too long, too many were excluded, and it is time to broaden the number of voices and share the mic."
